The World Health Organization (WHO) announced this Sunday that it is not yet clear whether the omicron variant of the corona virus is more contagious or more serious than other types of Covit-19.
The international organization explained that there has been a recent increase in the number of positive cases of coronavirus and hospital admissions in South Africa, but it is clear that this may be linked to other factors.
The WHO noted that researchers around the world are conducting research to understand the behavior of the Omigron variant.
According to the report, initial tests suggest that the risk of re-infection with Govit-19 may be higher with the Omigran variant compared to other strains of the corona virus.
Although research is still in progress, the WHO recalls that vaccines are still effective in reducing acute illness and mortality.
In this context, the World Health Organization recommends that countries take steps, including strengthening epidemiological surveillance, to address omigran variation.
Last Friday, the WHO classified the most recent Omigron variant as the “variant of anxiety”.
